Waterstones Says

The celebrated author of Norwegian Wood, 1Q84 and What I Talk About When I Talk About Running presents his musings on the peculiar profession of the novelist, discussing his own creative process as well as the role of novelists in society in characteristically luminous prose.

A unique look at the craft of writing from a bestelling master of storytelling. Readers who have long wondered where the mysterious novelist gets his ideas and what inspires his strangely surreal worlds will be fascinated by this highly personal look at the craft of writing.

In this engaging book, the internationally best-selling author shares with readers what he thinks about being a novelist; his thoughts on the role of the novel in our society; his own origins as a writer; and his musings on the sparks of creativity that inspire other writers, artists, and musicians.

“A sobering glimpse into the mind of a contemporary literary legend, Murakami-style”

'Novelist As A Vocation' is no ordinary 'how to become a writer' or 'how I became a writer' book and for that I'm grateful. Instead, we see into Murakami's writerly soul and all... More

“A Fascinating Glimpse into the Writing Life of a Literary Legend”
